I am searching for my 3rd great grandfather Will COLLINS. I have never looked into Giles Co before because I found him in far SW-VA but recently I found the following note in Virginia E. DeMarce's materials on the internet where a William Collins is mentioned along w/ some other Collins for whom I have no known connection. DeMarce says:
"Schreiner-Yantis' transcription of the
1815 Giles Co., VA, personal property
taxes (Schreiner-Yantis 1970b) showed
numerous names of interest:
p. 2, Feb. 25: John Mullins, James Mullins
p. 4, Mar. 2: Sarah & Wm Boling
Mar. 9: Wm Collins
p. 8, Mar. 17: Thomas Collins Sr, John
Collins, Jacob Collins;
Mar. 18: Jemima Collins, Lucretia
Collins, Samuel Collins, Millinton
Collins, Solomon Collins, Thomas Collins
Jr., David Goens.
There were also 3 Lucas and 3 Williams on
Does anyone know anything about this William COLLINS noted here. This COLLINS family is one of the most mixed up families I have ever found and the hardest to trace. I have been searching for Will for 30+ years. Here follows ALL the information that I have on this grandfather:
